building and using gcc-3.2

hi all,

i've built and installed gcc-3.2.  however, it won't link to shared
objects compiled with gcc-2.96-98 (this is straight c, no c++ involved).
the dynamic linker bombs with this message:

   /lib/*IND*+0x0): multiple definition of `__xstat64'
   /lib/ first defined here
   /lib/*IND*+0x0): multiple definition of `__fxstat64'
   /lib/ first defined here
   collect2: ld returned 1 exit status

i successively built binutils and glibc-2.2.5, thinking that was my
problem.  now i can dynamically link to glibc-2.2.5's libc and utilizing -Wl,--dynamic-linker and -Wl,--rpath, though the
resulting binary segfaults.  :/

my question: what do i *need* in order to be able to use gcc 3.2 on my
current system?

  - do i *need* a new binutils?
  - do i *need* shared objects exclusively compiled with gcc 3.2?
  - do i *need* a new glibc exclusively compiled with gcc 3.2/binutils

any pointers (no pun intended), urls, comments, flames, and/or
suggestions are more than welcome; in fact, they are appreciated.

thanks for your time,
